it’s all about content, anyway

Did I mention that you can subscribe to Sugarbutch Chronicles via Feedburner? Well, you can. And in fact, it’d be awesome if you did (or if you are currently subscribed via some other feed, if you switched over to the feedburner version), ’cause then I could tell how many of you readers are out there. Which would give me a good sense of whether I should change over to a WordPress domain …

One of the reasons I ended up on blogger here is because lots of the folks that I admire are hosted through blogger, and I was seeking to become part of their circle. And I have, somewhat (even if they didn’t invite me to Madame X’s on Monday night ;).

There’s really nothing exactly wrong with blogger, it’s just not as fancy as WordPress …

This all started with my upgrade to the new fancy blogger features, where I have categories and widgets and such over on the side, which made me want to start designing and playing with the layout. And while that’s great and fun and all, really it’s unnecessary – it’s the difference between treating the writing of the blog as the hobby, and the designing of the blog as the hobby. And both of those things are hobbies & interests of mine, but it does seem to be that I will get distracted by the latter at the expense of the former, at times.

So maybe that’s a reason to keep Sugarbutch simple, hosted on blogger: it’s not about the design, it’s about the content.

… And as long as I’m writing a post that isn’t about sex, gender, or relationships (which is STRICTLY what I’d like to keep this blog to, and not just personal musings about whatever), I want to mention that I picked up the new Patty Griffin CD yesterday and it’s fucken brilliant.

(So, did you subscribe to Sugarbutch Chronicles via Feedburner yet?)

  1. Aight, I switched to Feedburner.We had not control over the invites. But we're all going to Audacia's launch party.

  2. I am switching my links, as long as you’ll post EVERYTHING you write here, over there?

  3. I agree about content vs design. I've made my design a little bit fancier since going to new Blogger, but the content is more important. You don't want people not reading your words because you have an utterly fascinating piece of artwork at the top of the page!!
